Sweater dress is basically a great pull-on-and go dress that looks like a longer version of a pull over. One of my personal favorites, a sweater dress is sure a great winter wear. It's versatility and comfort looks great on almost all body types. What's more is that it is super warm and trendy.
Here are some ideas on how to wear this versatile little dress.
Own as many as you can. It's versatility will persuade you to buy more. However, if you are on a budget spree go for neutral shades. If you can buy just one go for the best you can afford.
You can add some pizazz to your look by teaming a solid color sweater dress with patterned or bright color tights. For a formal look to office, team the dress with sweater coat. If you feel that wearing a sweater over the sweater dress is probably very bulky, you can instead got for a simple long sleeve tee under a sleeveless dress for a sporty look [ but not as a formal wear]. A stylish black sweater dress can look professional, as well as being easy to jazz up for after work activities. In addition, you can pair your dress with denim, blazers or jackets. If the dress has a low neckline, team it with a thin sweater in a corresponding shade to give you a whole new look.
A sweater dress sure looks great by itself. However, you can change the look of your dress by just adding some interesting accessories. Chunky bracelets and earrings are great accessories to wear with sweater dress. Long beaded neck pieces or colorful scarves on a solid cold sweater dress can make heads turn.
If you prefer more definition, add a nice thick belt to accentuate your waist. The belt sits high on your waistline giving the illusion of a lengthy silhouette making you appear taller. Remember. you can change the look of your sweater dress every time by just changing the belts. Have a collection of belts in various style, shapes and colors.
As for the footwear, you can team it with most type of shoes. For a dressier look, go for a pair of high heeled shoes. Pair it with a great pair of pumps for an evening out. If you prefer flats, opt for short dresses. Boots with matching tights or leggings look ultra chic. Remember, if you have short legs your tights and color of the boots should match.
As you see the possibilities of dressing a sweater dress is just endless. How you decide to wear depends on the occasion, after all there are numerous ways to dress up the ' little wonder' sweater dress.
